Hey Families! A reminder that our PTO will be meeting next Monday, August 1st at 4:00 on the RPTLE playground. Please come out and help us plan for the coming 22-23 school year! Kids are welcome!
Good Evening, Families, Depending on the weather app that you use, there's either a 70% chance of rain (Weather Bug) or a 10% chance by 10:00 am (Weather Channel) tomorrow. This tells me that we'll have to be flexible with our TEAM DAY schedule. Right now, our plan is to leave school and walk to Twin Lake Park at 9:30. We want to salvage as much of our day as we can. If the weather looks crummy all day, and there's no hope for a clearing, we will have to cancel. If it starts out rainy and looks like it will clear, we'll adjust our schedule. Either way, I'll do my best to communicate the plan. If you've volunteered to meet at school and help walk the kids to the park at 9:30, I'll make sure to send out a message by 9:00 if this plan has changed. Fingers crossed that we'll wake up to a clear day! ~Dawn Schmitt~Principal

Dear Families, Please see the communication from Courtney Burrows, our Food Service Supervisor, regarding the milk carton supply and how it will affect our district. "I received the following update from Prairie Farms this morning... Michigan is experiencing a shortage of ½ pint cartons. The supply has been decimated across the Country and we were hopeful we were going to get through unscathed. This week we started feeling the effects of this shortage and it is creating shortages across the state. We will experience these shortages into next week..." Our school will run out of the milk cartons tomorrow morning. After this time, they may juice, or water. We're hopeful that this will be resolved soon. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Filing a tax return is the only way to get the remainder of your 2021 Child Tax Credit. See #IRS Publication 5534G for more information! https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p5534g.pdf
